As the world continues to strive for more sustainable and renewable forms of energy, the importance of energy storage for renewables is becoming increasingly clear. Energy storage allows renewable energy sources, such as solar panels and batteries, to be used more efficiently. With that said, keep reading to discover why energy storage is an important part of the future of renewable energy.
What is energy storage for renewables?
Energy storage for renewables involves specialist storage solutions designed to safely house renewable technologies. Containerised energy housings can be connected to provide scalable solutions for deployable power, emergency and backup power, and power in remote locations, temporary sites or sites with no grid connection.
This type of storage is essential to the growth of renewable energy, because, for example, renewable energy sources such as solar panels and wind turbines don’t generate power when it is needed: during winter evenings and on rainy days. Therefore, that energy needs to be housed correctly so it can be used when it is needed the most.
Why is renewable energy storage important?
The need for renewable energy is continuing to grow. With climate change and the rising cost of fossil fuels, many businesses and homeowners are turning to alternative fuel sources including solar and biomass solutions. And, with the growth in renewable energy technologies, comes an increased demand for specialist storage facilities.
What are the benefits of using converted shipping containers to house renewable energy?
Shipping containers are increasingly being converted into storage solutions for renewable energy for several reasons:
- They have the durability to withstand weather conditions all year round.
- They are built from robust materials meaning they can be utilised for many years.
- They are highly versatile and can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.
- They provide enhanced security so you can be confident that your specialised equipment is safe and secure regardless of whether you are on-site.
- They are available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate your chosen technology.
